Changed out the idler which is just to the right if the thermostat.
Was simple enough in the end.
Removed the air intake pipe
Removed the resonator pipe from the intercooler to the supercharger
Eased the tension on the serpentine belt
Undone the idler securing bolt and slipped in...
Thanks for the reply....
Its the idler / tension er of the serpentine (Fan Belt) I'm inquiring about.
Unfortunately I'm aware of the timing chain issues and hoping against hope that I dont suffer from that for a long time yet.
Any info on the serpentine belt tensioner; I'd...
I've a 2008 W204 C180K and I'm sure the idler / tensioner of the serpentine belt is the cause of the noise (Like a squeak) from under the hood so I'd like to change it out.
Has anyone done it? I'm thinking it should not be a big job as the engine is only 4 cylinders so I should...
I own a W124 E220 Coupe registered in 1996.
Currently I am in the process of stripping the engine to replace the head gasket and I am now @ the point of locking the camshafts....... but......everything I've read online states that the camshafts are locked when the crank aligns @...
KTH286 and grober,
Many thanks for the replies lads...... no mine does not have the headlight wipers.
Cannot see anything that should connect to it so will press on and box up the area under the steering wheel.
I found this electrical connection point located close to the headlight selector switch on my W124 coupe but I have no idea what itis for or what should be connected to it.
If anyone could help; I'd much appreciate it.
Balge & WDB124066,
Cheers for the replies...... the wiring diagram I'll print out and see from there.
I reckon the spade connectors are associated with the retrofit of the alarm and disconnection of the factory fitted central locking.
I spend another few days at it and box it up for the summer...
I the photo below, I have pointed to the two protrusions on the sides of each switch. Using a pliers, I simply squeezed both protrusions together and pulled the switch out.
Many thanks for the help.
Excellent Stuff WDB124066,
Thanks for that...... I guess I got lucky connecting up the wires!!!!!!! I'll put back the side cards probably tomorrow or the weekend now I know the wire connections to the motors are correct.
Car is a bit of an electrical nightmare as many, many hands have been...
Trying to get to the bottom of the seat belt presenters not working. Have carried out the following checks:
Passenger side seat belt buckle; disconnected the wire under the seat and checked using a multimeter.
Belt in: 4.3 Ohms Belt Disconnected: 4.3 Ohms...
That makes sense as it has an aftermarket alarm fitted that operates the central locking. The infra red button on the key does not work.
Do you know if their is a module for controlling the seat belt extenders and where it is located. I've checked and changed out all the fuses...
The photo below shows the three electric modules which are located under the rear seats of my w124 coupe.
I have figured that the one under the passenger side seat is the module that controls the electric windows.
Merc Part # 202 820 09 26 (01)
The two modules under the...
You are a legend.....many, many thanks. I'll be back to the car on Thursday coming and will set it the wiring as per the photo.
Thanks again Pottering, much appreciate it.
'''''''''''''''First of all let me acknowledge that what I done below was stupid and I know it but the intention was good''''''''.
In my wisdom I decided to remove the module under the passenger side rear seat of my W124 Coupe to 'Clean Up' the electric connections / pins. The...
Thanks for the replies.
I have tried pulling & pushing the connector but no budge. Would be almost certain it has never been touched since the factory.
Won't get down to where its stored again until the weekend when I'll try again and hopefully will get to report back next week on success!!!!!!
I recently purchased a 96 E220 coupe and have it garaged for the winter.
So far I've removed the front and rear seats and parts of the centre dash as part of investigating dull / blown bulbs etc.
One thing that I cannot figure is how to disconnect the electrical plug that...
